We talk a lot about felon disenfranchisement, which is the practice of taking away the right to vote from someone who is convicted of a felony. And we talk a lot about rights restoration, or giving the right to vote back. Today, we are honored to speak with Deb Graner who recently regained her voting rights and has advocated for a change to the laws, and Claire Sandberg the law student who helped Garner through the process to have her criminal conviction expunged in Kentucky.
